Tips On Wearing Wide Leg Pants

Oh man, I am getting spoiled with all these pics I can use from my photo shoot. Then I will have to go back to my normal {may we say, sometimes awful} pictures. Ah well, maybe the Fife's will take more fabulous ones sometime soon. Until then...

A few tips on the wide leg pants:

  • Make sure they touch the ground when you are wearing heels. In fact, it is even better if you can't see the shoe at all. 
  • ALWAYS {well, almost always} they should be worn with heels. The purpose of the wide leg, high-waisted pants is to make your legs look super long, and that is only accomplished when you wear heels that nearly don't show, because then it looks like your legs are just really that long all on their own. 
  • The look best on everyone if they are snug up top (from waist to the top of your thigh, not the whole thigh, those are flares). 
  • Tuck in your shirts with high-waisted pants, that will also add length to your legs.
Most importantly? Have fun, because fashion should be fun and just another expression of yourself :)

Have a wonderful Tuesday!!



  1. Great outfit! I've been looking for wide leg pants! And this is a great post too, very informative :)

  2. I got these beauties from Goodwill, if you can believe it! But they are J.Crew, if you want some for yourself :)

  3. Can I respectfully disagree? I think when you can't see the shoes at all a lady looks like a circus performer on stilts. like this : http://www.bjonesstyle.com/blog/2011/05/10/wearing-it-again/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+BJonesStyleBlog+%28B.+Jones+Style%29
